The Happy Kitchen Project: Decorating with Flowers

Day 24: The Happy Kitchen Project: Decorating with Flowers

Nothing says happy more than flowers! Fresh flowers bring new life and energy to any space and remind us that we are all beautiful, living beings. Flowers always delight the senses, while adding colour and fragrance to any kitchen.

So brighten up your space with fresh-cut flowers for that Happy Kitchen vibe we have been working towards.

Flowers also add a personal touch! Whatever your style, flowers and plants are the perfect way to add beauty and warmth, and create a space that reflects your personality.


Adding cut flowers in vases or vessels is the quickest and easiest way to add life to any room. So when you need a pick me up, or a quick kitchen overhaul, think about picking up some flowers for your kitchen.

The flowers do not have to be expensive! Go out to your garden and cut some branches or blooms off your plants.

Use your kitchen tableware to display your flowers.

Use your good china and your everyday stuff. Mix it up. Use your teapots, teacups, silver bowls and whatever else you have on hand and strikes your fancy.

Use baskets.


If in doubt, use the the KISS principle! Keep it simple stupid!

Try planting some pretty flowering plants in your teacups.

Mix up the vessels! You don’t always need to use vases. Recycle interesting cans. Sometimes the labels are beautiful, sometimes the plain can is beautiful!

Try using succulents instead of blooms!

Try using single vessels as well to space out your florals.

    What a beautiful post! I love the fact that orchids don’t play a starring role. I’m sooooo tired of orchids. Even Costco sells orchids! My new favorite flower is a “Dahlia”. Unfortunately, cut dahlias don’t last but they are so beautiful and elegant!

    Love these wonderful suggestions especially the teacup arrangements because I have two teacups that I used for the last bit of basil for the summer to make the room smell fragrant. This however takes it to the next level. Thanks for the inspiration. Cheers, Maria
